Synapses, conceptual computer artwork. Synapses are the junctions between the ends of two nerve cells (neurons). Signals are passed along the nerve cells in the form of an electrical impulse (bright regions). When the impulses reach the synapses, they are transmitted from one nerve cell to the next by the use of specialised chemicals, called neurotransmitters, that cross the synaptic gap (represented here as lightning).
